he makes plays. which is nice because guys always look good in practice, but only a few "make plays"

Clemons could surprise many by sharing reps with Wilson...

players like Sean Smith also could be thrown into the safety position in a few packages because of his versatility.

it's a very competitive camp right now with a lot of young talent emerging.

QB Pat White also continues to look horrible. I don't recall ever being as harsh as I am with a rookie before. He just looks so distracted in plays. I feel like I can actually hear him thinking to himself what the play is while he's backing up it's fairly pathetic.

BEST DOLPHINS OF ALL TIME, BY THEIR #

During the offseason, it's always good to go back and revisit some Miami Dolphins history. After all, there are only so many times we can sit here and debate the same old debates ("Pennington vs Henne" for example). We could break down the roster battles, but I plan on getting into that as training camp approaches in July as part of our in-depth "training camp primers."

So I thought that it might be fun to go through Miami's entire history and pick out the great Dolphins to ever put on a particular uniform number. I'll give you my picks and attempt to explain why I selected each player. Then I will open the floor up to you all to tell me if you agree or disagree. We will kick things off with the numbers 1 to 10 - meaning we'll see mostly kickers, punters, and quarterbacks here.

Number 1 - Garo Yepremian, K, 1970-1978
Sure, Garo made the bonehead play that ruined the shutout the Dolphins had going in Super Bowl VII against the Redskins. But Yepremian was a very solid kicker for his time. You look at his FG percentage during his time in Miami and you see he made just 68% of his kicks. But it was a different time then. And Garo was a two time Pro Bowler and voted a 1st team All Pro two times. That's enough for him to be the greatest Dolphin to ever wear #1.
Other candidates: Matt Turk

Number 2 - Cookie Gilchrist, FB, 1966
Gilchrist came to Miami in 1966 for the Dolphins inaugural season following 4 Pro Bowl seasons combined with Buffalo and Denver. He was also the AFL's Player of the Year in 1962. But Cookie played in just 8 games for the Dolphins in '66, rushing for 262 yards on 72 carries. But he's the only player wear #2 for the Dolphins to score a touchdown - catching a TD pass in his one season in Miami. So he gets the nod over Brandon Fields - though Brandon could leapfrog Cookie with a couple good seasons beginning here in 2009.
Other candidates: Brandon Fields

Number 3 - Joey Harrington, QB, 2006
As hard as it is to put Harrington on a "greatest anything" list, Joey's play in '06 was better than any other player to wear the #3 in Miami. Joey was 5-6 as a starter that year when he took over for Daunte Culpepper. He threw for 203 yards per game and had 12 touchdowns to go with his 15 interceptions. He was a contributer to some of the Dolphins surprising wins that year, including his 3 touchdown performance against the then-unbeated Bears and his 250 yard passing performance against the Vikings. He also played well, completing 60% of his passes, in Miami's 21-0 upset over New England. So "Joey Sunshine" is my pick here.
Other candidates: Jay Feely, Tom Orosz

Number 4 - Reggie Roby, P, 1983-1992
This one was easy. Roby is probably the best punter to ever put on a Dolphins' uniform. He was a 3 time Pro Bowler and was 1st team All Pro twice. He led the NFL in yards per punt one time (1991) and finished in the top five 8 times in his career.
Other candidates: George Roberts

Number 5 - John Stofa, QB, 1966-1967, 1969-1970
Not much to choose from here so I went with the player who has a 2-0 record as a starting QB for the Dolphins. Stofa started the final game of Miami's inaugural season and won 29-28 on the heels of two 4th quarter touchdowns passes from Stofa. That game saw Stofa go 22 of 38 for 307 yards and 4 touchdowns. Stofa then opened the 1967 season as the Dolphins starting quarterback, completed all two of his pass attempts in week one against Denver for 51 yards, scored a touchdown on the ground, and then got hurt and was replaced by some guy named Bob Griese. We all know how he turned out. If not for Stofa's injury, Dolphins' history could be a bit different.
Other candidates: Donnie Jones, Dan Carpenter

Number 6 - Joe Nedney, K, 1996
Nedney only played one season for the Dolphins and made just 62% of his field goals during his time here. But he gets the nod simply because I refuse to add Ray Lucas to any list like this. Lucas cost the Dolphins the season in 2002. The Fins started off 5-1 but Lucas was forced to take over at QB due to injury. He went on to lose 4 of the 6 games he started, including a four interception game against the Bills. So thanks to you, Ray, Joe Nedney makes this list.
Other candidates: Jim Arnold

Number 7 - Fuad Reveiz, K, 1985-1988
Reveiz spent the first four years of his NFL career in Miami. He had two solid years, making over 80% of his field goals, and two poor years, making under 70%. But his four years in Miami saw Fuad make 74% of his FGs and he finished 7th in point scored in his rookie year. His only competition is from A.J. Feeley for this spot and Feeley cost the Dolphins too much to be on this list. However, Reveiz shouldn't get too comfy being listed here - as a certain player wearing #7 is just awaiting his chance to prove himself.
Other candidates: A.J. Feeley, Craig Erikson

Number 8 - Daunte Culpepper, QB, 2006
Only two players have ever worn the #8 for the Dolphins. And lucky for Culpepper, the other guy was a punter who played one year in Miami. Daunte, for all his faults, was probably rushed into action to quickly by Nick Saban and company. He did win one of his four starts as a Dolphin and averaged over 230 yards passing in those 4 games. I suppose that's enough to be listed here. Well - that and the fact that I own his jersey (and learned a valuable lesson: don't buy any jersey too quickly.)
Other candidate: Klaus Wilmsmeyer

Number 9 - Jay Fiedler, QB, 2000-2004
Fiedler is a guy who doesn't get the recognition he deserves. He may not have been the most talented quarterback in the league, but he was one of the gutsiest and played well for the Dolphins. He has a 36-23 record as a starting QB for the Dolphins, throwing for over 11,000 yards and 66 touchdowns. He also left in Miami some terrific memories - such as his dive into the endzone against the Raiders with just seconds left on the clock and his 2003 Thanksgiving Day performance against the Cowboys, throwing for 239 yards and 3 touchdowns. I never understood why Dolphin fans got on Jay's case so much, to be honest. I guess it was part of the "post-Marino effect."
Other candidate: Scott Secules

Number 10 - Chad Pennington, QB, 2008-
This was the toughest one I've had to do so far. But when you win the Comeback Player of the Year award, come in 2nd in the NFL MVP voting, and lead your team to a division title, you deserve this recognition. Pennington was outstanding last year for the Dolphins. He was exactly what this franchise needed in every way and the Dolphins lucked out big time that the Jets are as dumb as they are. He led the NFL in completion percentage, was 2nd in passer rating, and 9th in passing yards. So Chad slightly edges out two former kickers for this spot - mainly because quarterbacks are far more valuable than kickers. And Chad is not only valuable on the field, but also as a mentor for Chad Henne off the field.
Other candidates: Pete Stoyanovich, Olindo Mare

11-20

It's time to continue on with our look at the greatest Dolphins of all-time. But rather than just making a list, I'm going through every jersey number and picking out the greatest Dolphins of all-time to ever wear each number.

Part one of this exercise can be found by clicking here. My picks for numbers 11 through 20 are below. Read through them and then share your thoughts.

Number 11 - Jim Jensen, WR, 1981-1992
"Crash" was always a fan favorite. And for good reason - he was a "jack of all trades." He could play quarterback, running back, receiver, and cover kicks and punts. The 1988 season was Jensen's best season - catching 58 passes for 652 yards and 5 touchdowns. He may have never been a Pro-Bowler and wasn't ever the team's leading receiver or anything. But he made plays when they had to be made - whether it was converting a key 3rd down by catching a pass or making a critical tackle on special teams. His "all-out" style attracted Jensen thousands of fans and he'll forever be remembered as a legend in the eyes of Dolphin fans everywhere.
Other Candidates: Damon Huard, Gus Frerotte

Number 12 - Bob Griese, QB, 1967-1980
Considering he's the only player to ever wear the number 12 for the Dolphins, I'd say this one was easy. Griese is an 8 time Pro-Bowler and 2 time first-team All-Pro. He won 92 regular season games as a starting quarterback for the Dolphins. He led the Dolphins to two Super Bowl wins and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1990. To be honest, there's no reason to go into further detail here, is there? He's simply a Dolphin legend.
Other Candidates: None

Number 13 - Dan Marino, QB, 1983-1999
Hmmm...where do I start? How's this - Dan Marino is the greatest player to ever put on a Dolphins' uniform. Marino was a 9 time Pro-Bowler and 3 time first-team All-Pro. He was the 1984 NFL MVP and Offensive Player of the Year. That year, Dan threw for an NFL record 5,084 yards and a then-record 48 touchdown passes - shattering the previous record. Marino was also named the 1994 Comeback Player of the Year and the 1998 Walter Payton Man of the Year and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2005. Currently, Dan ranks second all-time in career touchdown passes, completions, and yards.
Other Candidates: Jake Scott

Number 14 - Brian Griese, QB, 2003
When you have two Hall of Fame quarterbacks as part of your franchise, a lot of these QB numbers have few options to choose from. This is a perfect example. But since Griese went 3-2 as a starter for the Dolphins in his one year here, he'll get the nod for the number 14. He completed only 57% of his passes and threw for just 813 yards. But he did throw five touchdowns. Griese's best game came in his first start as a Dolphin, completing 20 of 29 passes and throwing for three touchdowns in a win over the Chargers in San Diego.
Other Candidates: Scott Zolak, Doug Pederson

Number 15 - Earl Morrall, QB, 1972-1976
Morrall only started 12 games as a Dolphin, winning 11 of them. But he filled in for the injured Bob Griese in 1972 and won nine regular season games and two playoff games for the Dolphins. While the Dolphins didn't win because of Morrall, he still was an effective game manager. That year, Morrall threw 11 touchdowns and 7 interceptions en route to winning the Comeback Player of the Year Award and being named first-team All-Pro. The truth is, even being towards the end of his career when he came to Miami, Morrall was a major part of that perfect season. Who knows how '72 would have turned out if Earl wasn't the team's backup behind Griese.
Other Candidates: Davone Bess

Number 16 - David Woodley, QB, 1980-1983
Woodley wasn't a great quarterback by any stretch of the imagination. But he still won games during his four years in Miami, compiling a 27-12-1 record as a starter. And he quarterbacked the Dolphins to Super Bowl XVII - which definitely means something. But Woodley never had a completion percentage over 55% and never had a season where he threw more touchdowns than interceptions. And sadly, Woodley will probably be remembered more for his post-football tragedy - drinking heavily, undergoing a liver transplant, and then dying from complications stemming from kidney and liver failure in 2003.
Other Candidates: Archie Roberts

Number 17 - John Kidd, P, 1994-1997
There really wasn't much to choose from with this number. But I went with the punter because Kidd, in 1996, averaged 46.3 yards per punt - which led the NFL. The other guy to consider here was Cleo Lemon, who went 1-7 as a starting quarterback in Miami and never led the NFL in anything. Kidd's 44.2 yard-per-punt average as a Dolphin is also a very respectable number. There's nothing respectable at all about Lemon.
Other Candidates: Cleo Lemon, Steve DeBerg

Number 18 - Sage Rosenfels, QB, 2002-2005
While Rosenfels never won a game as a starter in Miami (0-2), he did come in and lead the Dolphins all the way back from a 23-3 fourth quarter deficit against the Bills in 2005 in one of the most memorable games in Dolphins history. Rosenfels threw for 272 yards and 2 touchdowns that day in relief of Gus Frerotte. Rosenfels also led another comeback two weeks later against the Jets, taking over at halftime for an injured Frerotte and leading two fourth quarter touchdown drives to give Miami a 24-20 win.
Other Candidates: Cliff Stoudt

Number 19 - Scott Mitchell, QB, 1994-1996
I fully expect this to become Ted Ginn's spot in a year or two. But for now, Mitchell gets the honor. The 1993 season was the only opportunity Mitchell got to start in Miami - replacing the injured Dan Marino. That year, he went 3-4 as a starter, throwing for 1,773 yards and 12 touchdowns. I will admit, though, that I was close to putting Bernie Kosar at this spot simply because he was the one who came up with the "fake spike" idea - according to legend. But he was 0-2 as a starter down here and had more interceptions than touchdown passes. So I just couldn't bring myself to give Bernie the nod.
Other Candidates: Ted Ginn, Bernie Kosar

Number 20 - Larry Seiple, TE/P, 1967-1977
David Overstreet was probably on his way towards locking up this spot before his tragic death in 1984. So with nobody jumping out at me, I went with the first guy to wear the number as a Dolphin. Seiple is an interesting guy. Not only did he punt for 11 seasons in Miami - finishing in the top 10 in yards-per-punt four times - but he also caught 73 passes as a Dolphin as a tight end - highlighted by a 41 catch, 577 yard receiving season in 1969, catching 5 touchdown passes. Not bad for a guy who also punted the ball 80 times that season - the highest figure in the AFL that year. His versatility wins him this spot. After all, how many punters in this league today could line up and also catch 40 passes in a season?
Other Candidates: Marc Logan, David Overstreet

Dolphins rookie WR Patrick Turner agrees to 4-year deal


[pic - click to view]



Rookie Patrick Turner arrived in South Florida with a lot to prove and immediately showed in rookie mini-camp he had a chance to develop into the big target at wide receiver the team needs.

The Dolphins have rewarded their third-round pick with a four-year deal worth roughly $2.3 million, including a signing bonus of $714,000, an NFL source confirmed.

Turner, who turned 22 last month, still has to sign the papers, but said today he’s glad to get his contract negotiations out of the way.

“Now it’s just football,” Turner said during a youth camp at the NFL Rookie Symposium in Palm Beach Gardens. “That stuff is over and done with; it’s a good feeling.”

The team drafted the 6-foot-5, 223-pound Turner with the hope he’d complement the 6-foot-1 Greg Camarillo, 5-11 Ted Ginn Jr. and 5-10 Davone Bess.

Flashing precise route-running, sure hands and deceptive speed during the team’s voluntary workouts and mini-camps, Turner showed he might be able to fill the role.

Last season Dolphins signed free agent Ernest Wilford (6-4, 218) to a $13 million deal in hopes of giving the team a much needed big target. But Wilford dropped passes during training camp, lost confidence and managed only three catches in just seven games.

Turner, the No. 1-rated wide receiver recruit in 2005, has the size and pedigree of a big-time receiver, but he didn’t play like one at USC until having a 10-touchdown senior season. He caught just six touchdown passes during his first three seasons with the Trojans.

Former USC quarterback and future rival Mark Sanchez, the Jets’ first-round pick, said Turner is just beginning to scratch the surface as a player.

“I think Patrick Turner is going to be a special player,” Sanchez said today. “He’s really starting to come into his own and be a dominant receiver, someone who plays with a lot of effort and intensity.

“And he’s going to get better. You haven’t seen his peak yet.”

Because of inconsistency and questions about Turner’s speed ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay panned his selection by Miami with the No. 87 pick.

Heading into the draft, analysts had rated a number of receivers ahead of Turner, who was projected as a late-round pick.

But Turner caught the eye of the Dolphins at the Senior Bowl and has continued to do so since he arrived with his fellow rookies.

The Dolphins have signed three of their nine drafts picks: Turner, tight end John Nalbone, a fifth-round selection, and sixth-rounder Andrew Gardner, an offensive tackle.

Turner will receive the rookie minimum salary each year of the deal: $310,000 (2009), $395,000 (2010), $480,000 (2011) and $565,000 (2012).

He also has a playing time escalator clause in the final year of his contract that could increase his base salary to more than $2 million.

“It’s been a long road, it’s been a lot of hard work, staying focused on what you want to reach and attain,” Turner said. “It seems like it was just yesterday I was in high school. It’s a blessing to be in this position.

“I want to be in this league as long as I can.”

CB McKenzie to Dolphins?

The Dolphins have kept tabs and spoken casually with agents about a few unsigned cornerbacks, primarily Mike McKenzie and Travis Fisher, in case there are injuries in camp or if Eric Green and rookies Sean Smith and Vontae Davis struggle. Still, a roster addition seems unlikely, with Miami eager to develop its rookies. -- Miami Herald .....Ben's Take: If you're still looking for work in the NFL at this point, you're hurting.

i think we stepped up our secondary, with sean smith, and davis at corner and bringing in wilson at safety. i also think we stepped up our receiving core, im hoping that turner becomes the big reciever and red zone threat that he can be. im hoping with everyone coming back healthy and the new center we picked up that our o-line has stepped up. still think we need to work on our d-line and linebackers though. 2 more years with the offseasons and drafts we-ve been having im talkin championship
